One of the most basic solutions to common health issues is in what we eat. Food is crucial to our growth, development, mental capacity, and well-being. Food is at the intersection of health and hunger.
Recognizing this, our partners at Florida Blue have taken action to help us provide this most basic need to the hungry neighbors in our community. Florida Blue donated 2 refrigerated trucks to Feeding Tampa Bay in order to increase the amount of fresh produce distributed to food insecure families in our area (as seen below).
This donation is significant in not only bringing sustenance to individuals unsure of where they will find their next meal, but also in providing foods high in nutritional content to those lacking essential vitamins and minerals.
In case you missed it on social media, Feeding Tampa Bay and Florida Blue have been following the 2 trucks on their distribution routes through Hillsborough and Pasco counties and documenting their stops. From now until June 30, anyone able to spot these 2 vehicles along their route, grab a photo, and post to social media using #bluefeedstampabay will be entered to win a limited edition Bolts Blue Flame cookbook!
